Putting The Fun In Funeral

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

Strange name for a blog post I know but I recently had to purchase a black dress to wear to a funeral when I realised all my clothes are unsuitable for such a sad day. I ordered 2 dresses from Asos curve and chose this one to wear on the day but kept the other as I loved it and will blog about it later. As is always the case when it comes to swing dresses from Asos I sized down. This time to a 22 and could probably have gone with a 20.

I wore this dress minus the collar to the funeral and felt pretty smart and comfortable. I didn't want to just keep this dress for funerals so have added the collar and my Clarks Leopard Brogues and a Leopard belt to jazz it up a little. I love this look and always a fan of black and white this shall be worn many times.

Franklin makes his debut on the blog today in his lovely Spider Man onesie. He is doing well with his oxygen and should hopefully be off it by the end of this month. Keep your fingers crossed! He has had a lot of problems with heartburn and had a urine infection which hindered his growth and has him not taking bottles as he knows they cause him pain. He is back on track and growing well and we just need to get him back on bottles!

Leggings - Primark size 20 £3
Shoes - Clarks Brogues Hamble Oak 
Belt - from another dress

  1. Hi, you look great, where did you get the collar from?

    1. Thanks. It is from Romwe but I got it a year or more ago. They may still have something similar. X

  2. Love Franklin in the suit, and love that dress :)

  3. Franklin is so cute and fragile at once!! Hope he gets rid of the oxygen soon... glad he is getting so much better.
    And good ideas on spicing up a formal dress! X

  4. Your little man is looking so much bigger now! I love seeing his progress!
    I know what you mean about picking the right thing for funerals, but I love that you can dress this one up for everyday wear as well! xx
